Yankees OF Shelley Duncan Finding Stroke

Yankees outfielder Shelley Duncan struggling at Triple A Scranton, Wilkes Barre where he has been rehabbing a separated shoulder -- may have suddenly found his stroke in time for the September 1 roster expansion.

In a weekend outing at Allentown, Duncan was five four nine with two homers, two doubles, and seven RBI.

Though the Yankees’ chances for a playoff berth appear all but dead, the team has yet to officially run up the white flag and Duncan will be a handy playing piece should the team become hot and re-enter the race.
